20 Years On, Sam Raimi's Spider-Man Is One Of The Most Impactful Movies Of All Time

For better or for worse, superhero cinema is everywhere these days. Spider-Man: Far From Home was still in theatres in January, and we've seen The Batman, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and mighty mighty Morbius already in 2022.

Firestarter is also being vaguely marketed as a superhero movie, despite categorically not being one, while Thor: Love and Thunder will be here soon, followed by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever from Marvel and Super Pets, Batgirl, and Black Adam from the DCEU.

That's not to mention all of the TV shows which indelibly link to the MCU to keep an eye out for as well. Superhero cinema is the current king, as a glance at pretty much any box office record will show you, and it’s all thanks to Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.

Raimi's first venture into comic book movies turns 20 years old this month, which means it’s old enough to go to war and die for America and almost old enough to buy a Miller Lite.
